Can I make a function with optional parameters with a global from another file?

Recommended Posts


I am splitting my files up for simplicity sake. I have a function that uses global variables as optional parameters, it looks like this:

Func Wait4P( $pic, $waittime, $whattodo = 0, $errorjump = $program_fail_count, $startx = $windowstartx, $starty = $windowstarty, $width = $window_width, $height = $window_height )

I want that function in my graphics file, not my main file.

But when I do this in my main file:

$array = Wait4P( $IMG_files & "d3desktop.png", 2000, 10 )

I get this error:

C:\AutoIt\Diablo3Startup\LoadChris_6713.au3 (72) : ==> Variable used without being declared.:

$array = Wait4P( $IMG_files & "d3desktop.png", 2000, 10 )

$array = Wait4P( $IMG_files & "d3desktop.png", 2000, 10 )^ ERROR

>Exit code: 1 Time: 0.312

Am I going to have to forgo using globals to define optional function parameters or is there a way to do this?

My question was about autoit basic functionality. Not game scripts.

Your question might well have been about "autoit basic functionality" but you made it quite clear that the script was intended for "game automation". As such it falls foul of the Forum rules to which you were linked and so this thread is now locked. :naughty:

There is a message hidden in that statement if you care to look for it - it always amazes me that so many new members are apparently unable to see it. ;)
